I thought so to. I haven't shipped in years but I thought it would be more like 60.00. I'll get the pkg together with the turtle weigh it and look again. Delta dash and FedEx.Seems a little high to me. The most I've paid for overnight shipping was ~55 bucks. That was from NY to CA however it was a small package with hatchlings. I prefer delta to UPS. I've had a bad experience with UPS.
